"If they survive this year, the rest I'm sure will start to take care of itself".

Fans and clubs alike are looking for immediate success which adds pressure to what is already significant investments.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho admits that he needs to discover more goalscorers in his side ahead of the new Premier League season.

Perhaps most crucially, this squad now know what it's like to regularly win trophies after adding the Europa League and League Cup to 2015-16's FA Cup, and Jose Mourinho knows better than anyone the deep positive effect of that.

West Ham arrive at Old Trafford in Sunday's late kick-off as United look to launch a sustained title bid for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson bowed out with the league crown in 2013. They've got at least five players - Sane, Sterling, Aguero, Jesus, De Bruyne - capable of scoring in double digits, but with some questions regarding the center-forward position, the key man is likely to be De Bruyne.

Diego Costa, last season's top scorer, is spending the final weeks of his Chelsea career milling around with friends and family in Brazil.

"If we can keep (captain) Vincent Kompany fit and in the team alongside the new signings, then I think we have everything ready for a very successful 2017/18 campaign". I congratulated him and said that I'm very happy for him, that Stoke isn't that far away and that we can see each other. "Players here now are so young and will stay for the future".

Chelsea kick off their Premier League title defence at home to Burnley on Saturday, and the unbridled joy that drenched Stamford Bridge in May has been clouded by anxiety over the course of a fractious and frustrating summer.

Of the newly promoted teams; Brighton & Hove Albion, Newcastle and Huddersfield Town, I expect Newcastle to be the better equipped than the other two.

Deane is well placed to comment on the Premier League's effect after 300 appearances and 71 goals for four clubs across 10 seasons. "I've been playing there [at left-back] for a good seven or eight months now, so for me to be here [with the first team] after that amount of time, it just shows how much progress I can make".

So which lesser known player can make their mark?

They have their reputations back home but are a little less known in the UK. That tally for Arsenal was the worst in the big six, and also poorer than Southampton, Everton and West Brom. I think we're in for plenty of goals and a decent City win.

They haven't had wholesale changes but have bought in some quality in Javier Hernandez, Marko Arnautovic, Pablo Zabaleta and Joe Hart who will have plenty to prove.

Wenger will hope his switch to three at the back, which worked impressively towards the end of 2016-17, can help them improve in those crucial departments this term.

Lukaku hit 25 league goals for Everton last season and, with supply coming from the likes of Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the Belgian should record a similar tally. There have been a couple of games I've watched he's dived in.
